Wars without witnesses and asteroids

Stories and News No. 885

"We need to put the emphasis on civilian population," said one of the newly freed journalists in Syria, Ángel Sastre. "Because wars without witnesses are the worst kind of wars..."

Too many.
We are like asteroids with easy names.

Without witnesses.
We are too many.
Many more than you think.
